Foot and mouth disease hits South Korea again

Foot and mouth disease has broken out on a 900-hog operation in South Korea.

It’s the first outbreak in more than a  year, but government officials say they are not worried about an epidemic because there has been widespread vaccination of livestock.

The case was reported on Monday at a farm in Gimpo, about 30 km  northwest of Seoul, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said.
